    I've only tried Blue, but it's one of my favorite aftershaves, especially after using a soap with a barber shop scent. I'm halfway through one bottle, and have only one spare remaining. I can't imagine why they would stop making this traditional aftershave.

    The orange that Tom sent me, true story. Wasn’t ready for the numb face but grew to really love it.
    Never tried the blue either, but it sounds great.

    I managed to get the Orange whilst on holiday in Spain. i like it a lot, old school fragrance in my opinion, very nice on the dry down.

    An Italian acquaintance in Qatar went back to Italy for a few days, I had him on the lookout for the Blue, alas he did not manage to find it, but brought me back a large bottle of the Orange and some Proraso soap.

    It is a pity that Floid Blue has been discontinued.

    It wasn't the be-all, end-all of barbershop scents. But it had it's own place, that nothing else really filled. I was never ashamed to wear and enjoy it, and let my freak flag fly. I'm blessed to still have an original bottle still 2/3rds full, which I will ration out for my remaining life. Those Italians are the shit.

    It's not like a ton of others are making down-home barbershop aftershave scents to replace it, either.

    I wish you would tell me what an end all. Be all aftershave is. Cause I ain’t found any so I guess they all fall short. As far as the blue scents go it’s in my opinion one of the better ones.

    I'll bite the bullet--a bit under $19 USD delivered--if I don't like it I can send it away for someone else.

    I am tempted to buy some too, but having never tried the original I have nothing to compare it too.
    So my review will be useless aside from saying if it’s “nice”,
    I await the feedback from someone in the nose.
